That Keyboard-Shaped Waffle Maker Is Finally Getting Made

iron-keyboard-waffle

It’s been floating around the Intertubes since at least 2007, but at last it looks like we just might be able to have waffles in the shape of a keyboard. Having first graced the cover of Gizmodo back in 2007, and right here on OhGizmo in 2008, Chris Dimino’s creation has been 7 years in the making. Originally born from Chris’ desire to repurpose an old Corona typewriter, the waffle maker you’re looking at today is nothing more than two cast iron plates with a familiar keyboard layout. It’s not a powered machine, so you will need a stove or other hot surface to get it to temp, but once there, just pour some batter in there and wait as it does its magic.

How you eat a long, keyboard-shaped waffle is entirely up to you, but we can see this fitting right in a geeky household. It’s currently doing the Kickstarter dance and there’s no guarantee it’ll reach its goal. But if you fancy yourself a waffle aficionado, know that a $60 pledge will help make this product a reality.

Coffee Gourmet Is A One-Cup Brewer

coffee-gourmet-1

There are all kinds of coffee-making products on the market, and here’s Coffee Gourmet’s take on it. It promises “superior” flavour thanks to the way in which it prepares your coffee. You insert the device inside your cup, and expose as much or as little of the filter as you want, as this will set the strength of the brew; a more exposed filter means water flows out faster, resulting in a weaker coffee, and vice versa. Then you pour near-boiling water and wait a bit. Initially the ground coffee will block the filter, allowing the beans to “bloom” and release their essential oils. As this happens they’ll also release carbon dioxide, which will make them float to the top and coffee will start flowing into your cup. Keep adding hot water until the cup is full and voila, a perfect cup of joe. The entire process takes about 40 seconds, which prevents over extraction and the associated bitter taste.

It’s a $16 pledge, assuming they reach their funding goals.

Make Your Own Bacon With This Kit

bacon-making-kit

For all the talk about how much we love bacon ’round these parts, we’re surprised to realize we’ve never written about making your own! But that’s exactly what the above Bacon Making Kit lets you do. There’s coconut sugar, cracked black pepper, flaked sea salt, a thermometer and complete instructions, which is all you need to cure your pork belly and turn it into crispy deliciousness. Of course you’ll have to provide your own meat, but the kit has enough ingredients to process five 2-lbs batches, for a total of 10 lbs of bacon. For $40 and a bit of patience you too can experience the joy of home made heaven flakes (yes, that’s what we call bacon at OG headquarters).

Instant Happiness: Chocolate Cake in a Can

Chocolate Cake In A Can

Life can get pretty rough sometimes, but there’s no problem that a caring friend, a warm hug, or a slice of chocolate cake can’t solve. But why have just one if you can have all three? Not everyone has baking skills, but most people should find pouring water into a can simple enough–and that’s exactly all anyone has to do to “bake” the Food Ministry’s Cake in a Can.

They’re available in a bunch of yummy flavors, from classic chocolate and coffee to red velvet and chili chocolate. Each can contains a cake mix that’s measured to make a single cake, simply by adding water. It doesn’t get any easier than this.

Cake in a Can is available online for £5 (about $9).

Spring-based Nut Cracker Is Perfect For The Holidays

naomi-spring-nutcracker

It’s November, which means you’re thinking about Christmas. Ok, maybe you’re thinking about Thanksgiving too, but either way, there will be food and there will be nuts. Maybe. Do people even eat nuts during the Holidays? Whatever, we just needed a reason to talk about Naomi, the awesome spring-based nutcracker. Instead of grabbing the regular two-pronged cracker, or that awful wooden Nutcracker man your aunt gave you five years ago, you can play with this dome shaped spring that simply smashes into your nuts after you’ve pulled it up. It’s cool, it’s a fun design, and we wish we didn’t have to jump through hoops to get one. See, it’s a Japan-only thing at the moment, which means if you want it you have to pay like $70 on Amazon to own it, or wait until Red Dot Shop has it in stock for 20 Euros. Or wait until the cheap knockoffs start being made.
